How to directly change this world we are living in..

This is a guest post written by Stefan P.

It all happened on an April’s Tuesday. Calea Floreasca, the 9th floor in a building.

Three organizations interplaying. With its 20 members 1and1 was best represented, while the other two organizations – Viitor Plus (Future Plus) and Şcoala de Valori (The School of Values) had only one member each: Gabriela and Stefan.

Aquarium passion @ 1&1 Internet

I have been working in this company for almost 5 years, and the first time I came here for the interview, I saw afish in the aquaria @ 1&1 ping-pong table in one of the rooms, where employees could enjoy a break and relax for a while. I thought it must be great to work in such an office, and I would surely feel excellent here. The last 5 years confirm my first impression; I still love this environment, the people I work with and the projects that are being developed within the company.

Meanwhile, the Romanian team has grown, and so have the opportunities to enjoy a break, as besides the ping-pong table there is also a foosball table and a
